To celebrate Cambridge FC’s return to Northern League status, we’re inviting members of the club’s previous Northern League squads to join us special guests for this season’s first home game.
In particular, the club is keen to re-unite members of the 1993 squad who went unbeaten through the Northern League’s second division that year, as well as others who played during that era.
Our first home game of the season is a local derby against Claudelands Rovers at John Kerkhof Park on Good Friday (March 30).
The Northern League reserves game will kick off at 12.30pm and the main game will start at 2.45pm.
We’re inviting past Northern League players to come to the senior clubrooms from noon.
Supporters can help by sharing this information as we want to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the achievements of the Class of ’93, using them as inspiration for our new generation of Northern League players.
The ’93 team won the Waipa Sports Team of the Year award, a title won last year by Cambridge’s WaiBOP Premiership-winning squad.
Meanwhile, Cambridge’s return to Northern League after a six-year absence sees the club travel to Ngongotaha this Saturday for the season opener.
The reserves kick off at Stembridge Rd, Ngongotaha, at 12.30pm, followed by the main game at 2.45pm.
